We've discussed the renaissance going down at the Crocker Galleria in the Financial District, and now other folks are standing up and noticing. Case in point, the SF Bay Guardian featured the outdoor mall today for its new focus on smaller, locally-owned brands rather than high-priced national retailers.
T-We Tea is newly installed, with its cups of Bicurious George, Sexpot, and Hipsters in Wonderland. La Luna cupcakes is coming in spring, and as we previously noted the menswear for women shop Tomboy Tailors—each of which graduated from local small business incubators: La Cocina and Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center, respectively.
Under One Roof officially opens on April 1 after moving the the Galleria from the Castro, its home since 1991. Also check out the multiple pop-ups at the Galleria through the end of this month, as well as the farmer's market every Thursday year-round and every Tuesday as well in the summer.
